    I've always used Boric acid mixed with powdered sugar.

    They won't go for the Boric acid by itself, but they love it with powdered sugar.

    They'll disappear completely in a day or two. If the pets get to it, it's harmless.

    I have found that Mopping and cleaning counters with heavily bleached water has the ants gone, even the insects on they're backs . Threw the pail when done on my stone patio . Nothing moving now .Worked for me . Of course I have no pets .

It is really driving us crazy. And the 2 guys we used were in and out in maybe 10-15 minutes.  
    Help.  Thanks in advance.
    Fresh brewed coffee grinds-works like a charm-put them in a little bowl in the area where the ants are coming in. They absolutely can't stand the odor.

    This stuff is very effective. They love it and take back to nest.

    Try mistoline, they won't go on surfaces wiped with this, it helps a lot on countertops etc

    My mom says that she saw on line that Baby Powder works. She told me she tried it and no more ants. Amazing how some simple home products can be cross used, and at a cheaper and in this case safer way.
    I once saw something on line stating 17 uses for WD-40. Another cheap fix.
